Course Description

ONLINE: Looking for an easy, entertaining, weight-bearing exercise you can do at home that tones the whole body and builds strength, stamina and ease of motion? Taiji (tai chi) ball, a traditional auxiliary form within the art of taijiquan, has been practiced for generations to do just that. The ball or sphere, an image of energetic balance and integrity, is the only piece of equipment you'll need. You will learn a 30-movement routine focused on the three energy reservoirs of the head, heart and belly, and the powers of the sky, living things and Earth. In addition, we will practice Rising Lotus Medical Qi Gong and other exercises for healing, relaxation and stress reduction. | Active Skill Learning.

Please note: Participants provide their own ball: approximately 6 to 8.5 inches in diameter and a weight you can handle. Starting light still balances energy and improves posture and mobility. More weight begins to tone and build strength. Most people start with a weight between 0 and 6 pounds. You should be able to hold it without strain on one palm and pass it hand to hand around your waist. You may begin with a child's play ball or soccer ball, or even without a ball — visualizing the space between your hands. Textured rubber or faux leather medicine balls (Champion, Rhino, etc.) are good for starters, available from $20 to $50. You might experiment with medicine balls of varying weights at a sporting goods store, either purchasing there or online.
